Paris: Anirban Lahiri, making the cut after roller-coaster rides on first two days, played steady golf on the third to bring in a card of one-under 70, his best thus far at the Alstom Open de France on Saturday.
That brought Lahiri to three-over 216 for 54 holes and he was tied 49th for the tournament. He improved eight spots after being tied 57th at the end on Friday.
Lahiri, winner of Hero Indian Open and Malaysian Open this year, dropped three shots on back on first day and seven on the second day, including five in last four.
India's other two players, Shiv Kapur and Jeev Milkha Singh had missed the cut at Le Golf National.
